Do you understand what Arielle Scarcella means when she says "Some MEN also have them [menstrual cycle] but they at the time are still female enough to have a cycle"? Because I'm having a tough time reconciling the wording as cissexist and just plain problematic.
Thanks for the question and yes I think I do understand. She has been taught that women get periods., its what the world is taught. That is why I believe in education. She just need to be educated on this and I do not think she is intentionally saying this to be hurtful. It's what she has been told. Now it is up to us to make that change. Its hjust my opinion. I come from the place of teaching. Not getting angry if someone doesn't know. Lets teach. Thanks Buck
Hi! I'm 25 years old, born female and wanting to appear male since I can remember (about 2 years old). I've recently started seeing a therapist about a lot of stuff including being transgender. Thing is, she's understanding but virtually clueless about the whole thing. Do you think I should find a new therapist? I feel like a therapist should be able to give me information on groups and treatments in the area or even ideas on if insurance will help me cover things or clinics that do this stuff in the area. Am I wrong for thinking that? Sometimes this info isn't easy to find. What do you think I should do?
I want to say thank you for even reading this! Ever since the first time I saw you, you've been a huge inspiration to me and you are in the body I strive to have someday. Thank you for being on this planet and being as strong as you have been. You're a huge inspiration to me, and I hope I can feel as comfortable in my skin as you do.
Hello friend, Thank you for your kind words. You should get a therapist that understands transitioning. There are many out there. If you need help with a list tell me. You are in control of your own mental health so dont feel bad to change therapists. I am happy that you are taking care of yourself that way and going to seek mental health as I believe that is the first step before anything else.
Sending you love, Buck

Would you consider coming to Portland OR for an event, or just a little vacation? I know there is a community here who'd be overjoyed to welcome you! I'm in the sex industry and my partner who is just beginning to model in fetish videos is trans. Your story is inspiring to us! Thank you for your amazing work.
Hi, Yes of course just get me in touch with someone there to bring me in for an event!
with gratitude, Buck
Not really a question. Just wanted to say thanks for being! Your wife did a couple of my piercings in the 90's at Gauntlett. Was sad when she moved away. Discovered you on Netflix and you revived my sense of pride. Saw you were with her and somehow, it became a spiritual experience. What an amazing journey life can be!
Hi there, thanks for this, but...you should read this
To see how this woman soon became the enemy of the LGBTQ world when she challenged my gender in the court of law.
Sad day for the many people who have worked so hard to have the same rights as all.
Then you might just have a change of heart.
Thank you for your love
Hi Buck I'm a M2F trans woman in UK. I work with Trans youths and adults on UK trans issues and support and will be holding an open lecture with questions and answers for both Trans and non Trans people. If you are over here in UK at the time. No date set ad yet as organization is in process, would you be willing to come along as guest speaker, have a few photos taken and sign a few autographs.
Hi there yes of course please email me more info. With gratitude, Buck
Hi Buck, I'm the parent of a 15yr old ftm teenager in the UK. We were wondering if you have plans to come to the UK as it would be great to see you talk. You are such a positive role model (for both of us) and as I've followed your career since my child was tiny it feels like you are on this journey with us. When my son said he was ftm I immediately looked you up on YouTube and Facebook as an example for my child as someone who is a survivor and so strong.
You truly do influence the lives of people you have never met, thank you :)
Hi Rachael, That is so sweet thank you so very much. I hope I can come back sometime this year. I am looking for some venues to speak in. Thank you for being such a great and amazing parent and loving your child. It would be an honor to meet both of you on my next trip. Please check out my events page where I update my travels all the time. http://buckangel.com/events/
Sending lots of love and gratitude, Buck
Hey Buck! I was wondering if you have seen the new "religious freedom restoration act" Indiana. I've seen a number of celebrity names talking boycott Indiana, I've also noticed many seen to have no idea what is actually in the law. Kind of jumping on a bandwagon more or less if it suits an agenda. I find that very disturbing. In my opinion for what it is worth. I understand what the law for, however I believe it does need to be amended so it does not indirectly discriminate the LGBT community. I do not believe it was set into motion to purposelessly discriminate the LGBT community. Have you had a chance to research the new law in Indiana and your thoughts on it?
No I actually have not had time to investigate but would love to hear your thoughts.
With gratitude, Buck
Yes just send me an email and we can discuss your needs.
With gratitude, Buck
